Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I don't think the film has been aired (or has it even been made yet) but Kit Harington and Richard Madden will both be in The Eternals. I like Emilia Clarke but there's always one and I'm the one who doesn't and never did like Wham's music (I used to call them the gruesome twosome) so I'm in two min...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

On a history blog I sometimes visit someone had mentioned that in days of yore dog droppings were considered a very good ingredient when it came to the tanning of leather. It reminded me of something I read in Henry Mayhew's "London's Poor" (a contemporary account of London's poor in the nineteenth ...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

It's not a very good quality clip but NCW in his pre-GOT days played a baddie in a film called "My Name is Modesty" (based on Modesty Blaise the UK comic strip character). I saw the film on TV some time ago - it was one of those films which were okay but not great. https://youtu.be/bX4qto_KN7U

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

The Grandmaester mentioned a show Samantha Spiro had been upthread. The same actress (mother Tarley) played Angela Merkel's (Tracey Ullman) right-hand woman in a sketch show featuring one of the worst (to me at least) pop songs of the 1980s. https://youtu.be/7VjpIjxgPSY I don't have a clip but she a...

Who says women can't fight?

Somebody mentioned this incident on a history website I sometimes visit. The ladies weren't actually topless though - they just stripped down to their corsets. The dual was about flower arranging. :lol:

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Belatedly, thanks for the information about Sara Dylan, Grandmaester.

Now (at 0.37-40) has Drogon found a new gig? https://youtu.be/QFxN2oDKk0E

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I might watch Gentleman Jack - which I had decided not to watch, - because I now see that Gemma Whelan (Yara) is in it. The BBC had already shown a standalone drama about Anne Lister in 2010 with Maxine Peake in the title role and I'd been a bit annoyed about them going on about doing something "new...

Re: My predication on Brienne and Jamie

You did pretty well - came very close. My tinfoil theories usually turn out to be wide of the mark. I had thought Sansa would end up on the throne - well I was right in part I suppose.

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Sadly I missed it when it was broadcast on BBC radio but a DVD has been released of an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "Norse Mythology". From GoT, Diana Rigg (Lady Olenna), Natalie Dormer (Margaery) and Nonso Alonso (Xaro thingamabobs) are in it. Not from GoT but the cast (which is an ensemble cast not...

Re: Lord Parramandas's Written (and possible video) Reviews - Season 8

I didn't mind the piano music but unto each their own. Thanks for your review Lord P. I'm glad I wasn't the only person who thought this episode had merit. I've seen a lot of negative things written about it. Now everyone has a right to an opinion but I've said on the main website that although I ma...
